This sterling silver sliding lariat makes an awesome adjustable layering staple in any wardrobe. A tiny onyx star, plated in sterling silver, hangs from the top clasp, while the bottom sterling silver pendant features the phases of the moon. Slide the star all the way to the top to wear as a choker-lariat, or adjust to any length (up to 28"). Also can be worn with the pendants in the back, as back-jewelry, with the thin silver chain around the neck in the front.
In Native American beliefs, the moon is a protector. The symbol of the moon means many things depending on the season, the harvest, and when in combination with other symbols, but its overall meaning is that of serenity and protection. In addition, Onyx is a stone known for it's protective qualities.
